    Are you on a septic tank? Might need to be pumped out.

    Pour in some Dawn dish liquid, about 1/3 box of baking soda, and some vinegar down the drain. Let it foam up and sit for about an hour. Flush with hot water.

    If you have a food disposer & a black "rubber" splash guard  that leads into the drain gets "crud" built up underneath on the backside. I pull mine out carefully so as to not tear it & use an old toothbrush with some grease cutting dish washing soap & scrub the backside of the splash guard..rinse & pop it back in place. It gets gross pretty quickly & could be the reason for your odor in the kitchen. Hope this helps.

    Try running some ice through the disposal. Follow it with a pot of boiling water.

    DO THE volcano in drain..repeat If it returns..it's so effective. If you have a grinder/disposal in the sink, grind up a whole lemon.
